Breakdown of Resources by Subject Area

Maths

As a result of the support, the subject leader created a new maths assessment document that it used across the school. This is based on the new curriculum and looks at age related expectations across each year group. The use of the NCETM website has also been explored and rolled out to colleagues , particularly how the resource works as a planning tool. This is now a central
website for all teachers to plan and assess from. From this the school have developed a vocabulary booklet to ensure that, across the whole school, a consistent and accurate approach in the vocabulary all staff are using when talking about maths, is applied.

English

The funded support enables the school to focus on developing a new English assessment document that has been implemented in school this academic year. This is similar to the maths document as it is also based on the new curriculum and identifies age related expectations across each year group.
